President's Message
It is hard to believe how fast fall went. The annual dinner went very well with 34 attending. Our treasurer Jon Leonard, received the Certificate of Merit Award. We are planning another busy schedule for 2013 and hope many of you can attend the events. I look forward to seeing you at the Christmas Party.

Holiday Party Grab-Bag

The December meeting will feature the third Holiday Grab-Bag. Here are the rules:

  1. You can attend the meeting and not participate in the grab-bag.
  2. Anyone who wishes to participate in the grab-bag needs to contribute a gift.
  3. Although archaeological themes are welcome, other gift ideas are also acceptable such as baked items. In other words, simply use your imagination. 
  4. We are suggesting the value of the gift be up to $10.
  5. All gifts need to be wrapped and identified as to gender specific if needed.
  6. All participants draw a number.
  7. Number 1 goes first followed by consecutive numbers.
  8. Upon taking a gift it needs to be opened and shown to the group.
  9. Following number 1 each of the other participants can either take a gift from the table or from one of the other participants with a lower number, however you cannot take the same gift back twice in the same turn.  
  10. If your gift is taken you can go back to the table and take another gift, or take a gift from another person. 
  11. After all the numbers are completed and gifts opened, the person with number one can exchange their gift with anyone they choose. 
  12. All participants are encouraged to take a gift from another person if they like that gift. This is what makes it more interesting. So don’t be bashful. 

Once again dues are due for 2013! Please contact our treasurer, Jon Leonard, to send in your payment. Or you can pay your dues at the monthly meeting. Checks should be made out to IOCCNYSAA. Jon can be reached at the following:
